The fallout from the All Blacks’ World Cup loss to the Springboks has become deeply personal for New Zealand golfer Ryan Fox.

Fox, son of former All Blacks Grant Fox, had to wear a Springbok jersey during a golf tournament after losing a bet with his friend in South Africa.

“This feels like blasphemy to me, to be honest,” said Fox who is ranked number 27 in the world.

“We had a small bet on the final, without any money, just pride. If the Springboks won I had to wear this for three holes in the pro-am (Sun City).

“We all know the result.”

If the All Blacks had beaten South Africa’s Dean Smith from Fox – he would have had to use an All Blacks cover book for a year.

While he may have lost the bet, 2023 was lucrative with more than $6 million won by Fox as he took advantage of three top-five finishes in his last four on the DP World Tour.
